General notes
  • The basics are working though the site is not fully tested by any means.
  • BDSS should work from any virtual directory, more testing of this is required.
  • Only the password is checked to get into the settings page. The default password for this is status and may be changed in the web config.
  • Cookie always set with 14 day expiration.
  • Checks are run based on frequency set (in minutes)
  • A background task is spawned when /status page is visited which will run checks. This can be disabled with an option in web.config
  • To automate checks, set any service to GET /bdssapi/run, this will run checks. Scheduling cURL or a service like pingdom is great for this. /bdssapi/run will return the number of checks processed.
  • A sample site has been setup at
    • /status page check disabled
    • /bdssapi/run is hit every two minutes.
    • database is reset to a default configuration daily
    • password status
